The promoter of the F1 stc Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2021, the Saudi Automobile & Motorcycle Federation (SAMF), announced the release of additional general admission tickets for the inaugural F1 race weekend in Jeddah.

The announcement comes as Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health eased COVID-19 rules in the country, allowing the operation of events, public places, restaurants, and cinemas at 100 percent capacity.

“We are delighted to expand our ticket offering to fans in light of [the] decision by the Ministry of Health. When we first envisaged hosting a Formula 1 race in Saudi Arabia, we always planned on having a full house to mark this wonderful occasion,” the chairman of SAMF, Prince Khalid bin Sultan al-Abdullah al-Faisal, said.

“As such, it gives me great pleasure to offer fans our fantastic General Admission tickets alongside the choice of our existing packages. With grandstand and premium hospitality tickets selling out fast, this is a welcome new option for fans who still want to join us as we make history together in December,” he added.
